The OC Fair Culinary Arts Competition Starts Again: Come & Get It.
The Orange County Fair starts in just a couple days. Come & Get It is the theme and today was delivery day — Delivery of culinary, baked goods, confections and sugar arts for the Culinary Arts Competition at the Orange County Fair. My entries were dropped off at the very last minute. It’s also judgment day, when all is tasted and ribbons are assigned.
This year my entries included the pictured… Strawberry Stars (in Confections, Jellies), a Tangerine Cream Cheesecake topped with Candied Tangerine Slices (in Cheesecakes, Fruit Flavored and/or Fruit Topped) and Coconut Pineapple Scones (in Bread, Scones or Biscuits). I didn’t get to try my Cheesecake, but it looked good with the Candied Tangerine Slices.
The Scones were way too big, but tasted good — They were drizzled with a Pineapple Glaze.
OC Fair peeps taking in the goodies (below) for you to come and get it (or see it) soon.
Post Update (07/13/13): I won a First Place (Blue) Ribbon for the Strawberry Stars only and may be featured in the Orange County Register this weekend. I was interviewed by a reporter and one of the paper’s photographers took my photo. We shall see…
